The second one around 0:21 to 0:26 it blow 2, they're not prefect smoke rings like to see from straight pipe diesels, but still close enough :D

I thought about doing one of them I wasn't sure what was easier, I think I will get the svt ps line whenever i need to replace my pump or line lol :P.

I just vht ceramic coated them and wrapped them it smelled and smoked a lot when I turned her on.

Yep, that's it, I tried getting a pic, but Linux Mint wasn't being a happy customer with flash, or with chrome anyway, so pausing when I wanted was a nono lol.

Did the svt cat bolt directly to the zx3 exhaust? I have a magnaflow cat back on my car now and just purchased all the parts from a member here... Do I need a svt cat back??? Also did u hollow out the cat? Or just run it as normal?

The flex pipe is what connects to the exhaust it bolts right up to the zx3 exhaust but you have to slot the holes on the flex so that the zx3 exhaust bolts will line up.

The only difference between the magnaflow cat back from an svt exhaust and an zx3 is that the svt has a resonator in the straight section.

I dont know what u mean by hollow out the cat.

I mean punching out the internal block/ filter device so there is no restriction of exhaust flow... Basically it would make the cat like a orp, but looks stock and doesn't cost me more money to have one built at the exhaust shop or buy a orp...just wondering if u ran the cat stock...

I will proly be working on trying to punch the cat out this weekend... I also found a orp... So if I can't make this work I will have buy/build a orp... I have done it on cars and trucks before where u can actually take a pipe and a hammer and core out the cat... It takes some time but cheaper than spending 150+ on a orp...

Hollowing the cat will create more restriction than having it on and working.
